they believe romney has been kind of soft in telling us where he's going to go on foreign policy in his speech today as well as on domestic policy, how would he reduce that deficit. so they still think they've got openings here, wolf. and they do. anything can happen. overnight's a lifetime in politics, particularly when it comes to a close presidential race like this. >> and all those folks thought that president obama had it wrapped up a few days ago, not yet. gloria, stand by. mitt romney was clearly hammering away at the president's foreign policy before a military audience today and sketched out a stronger, bolder response by a romney administration. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta has more on that. >> reporter: wolf, after millions of americans watched mitt romney go toe to toe with president obama at their first debate, the gop nominee now wants voters to see him as commander in chief. he's done just that in a series of foreign policy speeches, including one here at the virginia military institute where he kudz the president of allowing the middle east to drift closer
on romney's speech, releasing a new ad, reminding voters of the republican candidate's gaffe-plagued foreign trip over the summer. romney, obama aides say, is no ronald reagan, more like chevy chase. combatting that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's
speech of romney's campaign. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region, and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east alied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> let me bring in the "news nation" political panel. chris and michael and jonathan and communications relations director for american cross roads and bobby gosch, deputy international editor for "time" magazine. jonathan, we heard governor romney's speech and saw excerpts before the speech. the hope line is replayed so much. what is the major failure of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney
about american planes creating a no-fly zone in the romney speech. we're not talking about creation of any kind of a humanitarian protected ground zone up in the north -- >> but, michael, i'm sorry to interrupt you, mike, but we wouldn't expect any details from this man because he never gives us any. t the overarching theme is he wants a new approach. not the approach being expedited by the president. i accept he hasn't gone into details but he doesn't give us details about domestic policy. do you not accept that that's what he's saying, that he's pushing this country, were he to be in a position of authority, toward some military conflict? >> to be honest with you, i'm more worried about iran policy than syria policy. on syria policy, i don't hear the distinction as being as great as you are. you're right to point out the candidates haven't been so specific we can be sure and we can still have this debate because the candidates have not resolved their own stances very clearly. on iran policy, as your package pointed out, they both say an iranian nuclear weapon is unacceptable, but
today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a lot of anti-american attitudes out there. he senses there is a moment now for him to take advantage and a
the president is vulnerable. i thought the most quotable line from the romney speech is hope is not a strategy talking about the middle east. you used the words leading from behind. mitt romney used it at least once in the speech. the speech was an attempt to say, this is what barack obama has done. here is what i would do. it was tonal more than specific. it was more we need to be bigger, more aggressive whether it's iran or another syria. it was broadly philosophically we need a stronger, more muscular approach. >> on several points he's critical on iran because he would have opposed the initial attempt to open up towards iran and thinks the president didn't go far enough at all in supporting the green revolution of students in iran in june of 2009. the response from the obama team is that the iranian leaders, the reform leaders, student revolutionaries were saying, don't be too overt. it will have a backlash effect. that can be e debated. on sanctions they are criticizing the failure to go tougher though the president arguably did better than george bush in getting russia and china to permi
is not a strategy. so tonight hear romney's speech and we ask what are the real policy differences? mitt romney with harsh words for the president offering his own view of a greater american role ound the world. >> our friends and allies across the globe don't want less american leadership, they want more. >> reporter: perhaps the biggest distinction, on syria. romney arguing the u.s. should partner with other countries to help arm the rebels to defeat president bashar assad. >> then ensure they obtain the arms they need to defeat assad's tanks and helicopters and fighter jets. >> reporter: romney's aide saying he is not suggesting the u.s. arm the rebels directly. president obama has opposed providing weapons to the rebels partly out of concern that those could bind up in the hands of terrorists. on iran mitt romney earlier this year saying this. >> if we re-elect barack obama, iran will have a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: but today was unclear what exactly romney would do that would be different. the obama administration imposing tough sanctions already. >> i will not hesitate to impose new s
strong. >> but according to excerpts of the speech, almost every policy romney will call for, a two-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly
account his tenth foreign policy speech of the campaign. romney's forays into foreign policy has been a mixed bag. from his rush to criticize the president on egypt and libya before all the facts were known. >> if you had known that the ambassador had died -- >> i'm not going to take hypotheticals about what would have been known. we responded last night to the events that happened in egypt. >> romney's effort to banish his foreign policy credentials with a summer trip was widely panned after romney seemed to insult the british handling of the olympics. his campaign spent weeks trying to explain why he didn't mention the war in afghanistan in his convention speech. today, romney will try again. arguing quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more pros% middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. it's a message he previewed yesterday on the trail. >> i commit to you i will be a leader. when i'm president, i will take the care that it takes to rebuild our principles and restore the principles that made america so strong. >>
or are so. mitt romney's speech in apopca florida could have won him the pulitzer prize for fiction. >> i think that is cheesy. 70 million people watched the debate. the fact is mitt romney made his case pretty strongly and did not actually misrepresent his positions on issues. and i think that mets will say that and i think -- i think that mitt romney will say that and i think paul ryan will say that strongly on thursday night. >> geraldo: up next, joe >>> we lived in the same neighborhood. when said he would walk me home i thought i would be safe but then he just tackled me. i got' way from him and i ran and i hid but he found me. he threw me to the ground. i pulled down my pants and he arpaioo scream but -- sheriff why didn't you do something? >> love him or hate him, joe arpaio is being slandered by the attack ad that said he ignored hundreds of sex crimes to pursue you his political agenda. everybody agrees that the ad is not factually, correct. joe, they are pulling out all of the stops. >> yeah. they sure are. you know, i never had any problems running for sheriff, geraldo. and all
and global unrest, governor romney is set to deliver this morning what his campaign is calling a major speech on foreign policy. we have our hands on a copy of his planned remarks. governor romney saying in part, quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope but hope is not a strategy. that address is set for 11:20 eastern. we'll have much more on that coming up later on this show. >> certainly will. ann romney introducing governor romney, her husband at his event yesterday. she is happy that the presidential debate gave americans a chance to see her husband for the man she knows and loves. >> one thing i appreciated more than anything else at the con veges and at the debate a chance for the american people, what chance they got to see my husband as i see him. a good and decent person. [cheers and applause] that throughout his life has exhibited his care for others, and now we're going to get a chance for him to really care for others because we're going to have the chance to see him get people back to wor
'll watch governor romney's speech 11:20am eastern time and get your reaction on that. we'll talk to a senior advice eupl for thadviser for the romney team. that is come up on fox. >> turkey returning fire on syria after another mortar rounds hits turkish territory. this is the 6th straight day of tur kirk retaliation. this is the season as rebels fire guns into the air celebrating victory after driving regime forces out of a town. four rebel units surround ep surrounded the arm's he's position. vehicles and weapons left behind by the fleeing forces. bill: iran is under a different kind of assault as an oil official there confirms they successfully blocked a cyber attack on a computer network for one of is i. tip. platforms. one source blames israel for the attack. the attack occurred over the past two weeks it said. >> proximate news alert out of venezuela, there are allegations of voter fraud as hugo chavez claims victory for a third term as president. with 54% of the vote the margin of victory is the slimmist yet for chavez. exit polls showed chavez oozing. they showed pictures
-- at least for a day-- as mitt romney sought to capitalize on new momentum. in a major speech, he challenged president obama's handling of a host of trouble spots. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i hope this hope but hope is not a strategy. >> woodruff: with that mitt romney took aim at foreign policy today in a speech at virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> woodruff: that last point involved the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya and the death of ambassador chris stevens on the night of september 11. the administration initially blamed an anti-muslim film for inciting the trouble. more recently official
the speech titled "the mantle of leadership." his backdrop, the virginia military institute. romney expected to focus on a vision of peace through strength and lay out how to handle a people in syria, libya and egypt. >> he is taking a step bc and looking. this is the world we live in. the president talks about a pivot to asia. the middle east is really unsettling, unraveling and let's take a look at how we got here and where we go from here. >> the address will draw what his campaign calls great contrast with president obama. the president's team already firing back with a new add titled simply "policy." >> reckless. amateurish. that's what news immediate why and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe-filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, "the new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. >> let's dig deeper. joining me now is nbc news correspondent peter alexander. good morning to you. explain to us the importance and the backdrop of the speech today for team romney.
of the speech today for team romney. >> reporter: yeah, thomas. as you know, this is not the first time spoken about foreign policy issues but the timing is critical now after the strong debate performance and the final month the campaign says they believe what the independent eyeballs focusing on this. as you noted, trying to demonstrate that peace through strength and effectively accuse the president of being a weak leader who has been bad for the military of this country. among some of the comments are the following. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share that hope but hope is not a strategy. there will also be familiar themes that we expect to hear here. the significance of avoiding defense cuts, specifically referring to sequestration and could affect tens of thousands of people here in virginia specifically. the need to reinvest in the military and the significance of working closely with america's allies. a lot of these contrasts rhetorical more than actual contrasts and witness. he's been vague as some notice
romney when he gives a speech today. >> it looks like in the excerpts that have been sent -- >> a distinct difference overall. >> he covers libya and egypt and syria. >> yes. >> there's a range. let's talk about iran for a moment. when you actually analyze the candidate's positions if you look at governor romney's position on ir and that red line that as you remember benjamin netanyahu was drawing in his speech and president obama's position they're similar, aren't they identical, really? >> well, soledad, i'm not going to get into the back and forth on foreign policy. i'm not a foreign policy expert. again, i think americans need to understand there i a clear and distinct choice between these candidates relative to their approaches to how we lead, how we have led, how this president has led, failed to lead it in a large degree. >> but their positions are similar -- i think their positions are similar, there's not a big difference between the two candidates. >> listen, soledad, i'm sure you can find similarities in a number of positions with leaders on a number of differe
the speech today. romney talked about the need for new leadership and bold leadership to bring a resolution to the israel/palestine situation. when the cameras were not rolling a few months ago when millions weren't listening or watching, romney had a different take on the exact same subject. i'd like to play that right now. >> these are problems that are very hard to solve. i look at the policy for political purposes committed to the destruction and elimination of israel, and he's throwing the issues. i say there's just to way. what you do is you move things along the best wake you can, you hope for a degree of stability but you recognize it's going to remain unsolved. >> so i'm sorry. it gets hard to take this stuff seriously at a certain point with when the guy gives a major foreign policy speech and bash obama for not bringing resolution to this program as president when he has gone in front of a group of people and basically said the best you could do as president is kick the can down the road. i have a hard time taking that seriously. >> unfortunately, he can't say that in the speech.
hours ago mitt romney took a foreign policy swipe in what will be billed as a big speech. >> the president has failed to offer the tangible support that our partners want and need. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. the greater tragedy of it all is we're missing a historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east, friends fighting for their own futures against the same violent extremists and evil tyrants and angry mobs that seek to harm up. >> right now the president is speaking at the national headquarters of the united farm workers union in california. does any of this really matter? do the polls matter? do ads, nearly a billion dollars worth matter? do all the campaign appearances tell the tale? we asked that with our team plus a friend of the show dr. john nan allen from politico. >> prish the intro. >> we have 29 days to go, and we know almost nobody decides based on foreign policy. does romney's foreign policy speech matter? does fo
speech. >>> welcome back. in the wake of strong debate performance last week, mitt romney hoped to capitalize on his momentum, and today delivering a major foreign policy address in virginia accusing president obama of a lack of leadership on the global stage. cnbc's john harwood joins us again with additional details. good evening. >> good evening, larry. mitt romney spoke at the virginia military institute in the very important swing state of virginia. he didn't lay out much of a policy contrast with president obama. they're in similar places, but he did cast a contrast in terms of himself as a man of action and president obama who is somebody who is more passive. here's mitt romney. >> it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. >> now, what mitt romney is trying to do is drive some of the polls that have shown significant progress for him post-debate. look at these three. it's a mixed verdict. you have, first of all, the very well respect
their way out of failure. you can see some of that. romney has a speech on monday on foreign policy and i think rhine roin will follow up. >> jake? >> i think it is libya and congressional hearings coming out next week and the governor will speak on monday. there is it a lot of foreign policy and a lot of things that are coming out between now and the debate on libya and the cover yup what is going on >> alice? >> i agree economy is ryan's strength and foreign policy. it is critical he's able to point out the obama administration believed that strength is a vulnerability as opposed to a weakness. he need toz point that out and we can succeed with strength and everything that happened with libya and inability to come to the truth of it was a terror attack. ryan needs to highlight that and that will resonate with the people. >> we'll an analyze it income week. nit picking but we analyze it i think paul ryan will have a great night. but i think we underestimate joe bide by. the pressure is on him to clean up the strike out in denver joe bidens had to sal vage the team. i think he will surpri
are a speech writer and written for the president. how does mitt romney take the moment and make sure he equals it in the next debate. expectations are sky high and low for obama. >> when you take the el a we have to take it we know what the attack will look likes. he will say romney is lying to cover a radical agenda romney will have to reply patiently and turn it to a more ark gressive side against obama's record and values and the man who showed nup denver can do thamp president obama will be better in the next debate. he can hardly be worse. i think that is kind much a -- kind of a given. >> like the mets are going to have a better season next year. >> but the manner he fail would and passive dictates that he will have to aggressive and that presents a challenge he is on the offensive he seems to be petulant and critize mocks. that doesn't come across well on television. it is possible that he will overshaft and overreact in this case and do something that is destructive. >> you have been back stage with me and michelle bachmann and one of these days, you will be with a winner . >> we'll be
want to show to you. this is basically where mitt romney is going to be going with this speech later on this morning. he is going to say, quote, we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in t middle east when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaig
at the democratic convention and more than 30 million governor romney's acceptance speech. but lots of people watching tonight may have already cast their ballots. early voting is underway in 10 states including the battleground of ohio. we have team fox coverage tonight. ed henry traveling with the president. first to campaign carl cammeron with the romney camp. carl, this is his big night. what's the thinking about the mood in that campaign? >> well, they kept mr. romney under wraps today in order to keep him focused. he had a very brief meeting with his senior staff and great deal today was actually spent with his staff. they don't want to leave it in the locker room they want him to come out and bring best game this evening. they are quite confident about it by virtue stepping on to the stage tonight as the challenger, mitt romney has the most to gain. they fully expect by virtue of standing next to the president there could be a bounce in the polls as a consequence of that. having said all of they're, the race to lower's examines appears to have been won by mr. rom anymore. the latest ga
that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in benghazi? >> i will let others decide that. there are republicans and democrats in congress calling for an investigation as we need to have. response was slow. confused. inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist are attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem it is part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is literally unraveling before our eyes on the tv screens. mitt romney is going to lay out a different vision for foreign policy. one that is a policy of american strength versus what i would articulate or say the president's policy is one of weakness. we are seeing the ugli fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens. syria 20,000 dead people. iran closer to a nuclear w
, in the cores of our interview with paul ryan, mitt romney plans a major foreign policy speech, a major critique of obama's foreign policy in the next few days, probably after the debate. how vulnerable do you think obama's foreign policy is, and how important is it for romney to go after him? >> the mantra, usama is dead, but gm lives, that was a smart thing for them to do. i think today we see things a little bit differently and it is unraveling in benghazi and the question is, why did they send susan rice out? why was it snanecessary to go o on five shows and say it was spontaneous. and they can't the fbi get into the benghazi site, and, why are we not in benghazi today? i think, president obama is enormously vulnerable on the point, because i think most americans today question whether we are going to be the world's sole superpower, five years from now or maybe three years from now but it is incumbent upon mitt romney to do the same thing in a way that netanyahu did at the u.n. with the chart. you know, the bomb and the 90% red line. he needs to tie it together. in a really visual way. what
20,000 civilians killed. what governor romney recommends in the speech -- in the speech is that we carefully select leaders in the opposition who we can trust and see if it is possible to support them. connell: but getting involved ourselves is not realistic, is it? i mean you support them by -- you give them arms is that what you are talking about, that kind of thing? >> right, providing assistance to those that we can identify and trust. you know, again for 18 months we haven't done that. if asked today, it would be hard to identify exactly who it would be that we could provide, even nonlethal assistance to that wouldn't result subsequently in internal bloodbath. connell: what i've picked up from romney today is a difference in tone a lot of it. if america does not lead that someone else will. that seems to be a theme throughout and then he goes through these different countries in the region, in the middle east one by one whether it's libya, egypt, we talked about syria, also mentions afghanistan. but in those sections of the speech today where he's mentioning those specific cou
've listened to all of these stump speeches, you probably heard them hundreds of times. the mitt romney that you've heard over the past couple of days, how has that message, how has that candidate compared to the mitt romney that you've, that you heard prior to that debate in colorado? >> yeah, i think to just add to the conversation you're having right now with the folks with you. i think that's exactly right. he's really felt looser, more relaxed. this is something he's long resisted doing. telling his more personal side. he didn't speak largely about his mormon faith on the campaign trail. but for the last two days and we expect to hear it again today, he told these personal stories and referred to a young boy he referred, 14 years old with leukemia, who referred to him as brother romney. he used to outsource that responsibility to others. and now he's taken that upon hisself. i think it a lot of it comes from the simple fact that at these events, there's a different sense of confidence in mitt romney than previously existed. a lot of people who came to his rallies for the last sever
-american communities. i am struck by this speech. if mitt romney gets criticized for going to the naacp and using the word obamacare why isn't barack obama criticized for a southern accent. if we are going to talk about pandering. this to me, you are watching somebody who we all know the president doesn't speak like that. she pandering and no one is talking about it. >> we have talked about it a lot on this show how when barack obama is speaking to certain people, whether they are workers at gm plants or black audience he tends to drop his g's and gets from folk i sy. >> in this was the middle of very successful presidential campaign. the media were siding by content to say obama says it, he is race transcending visionary beyond partisan. all this stuff that reporters were saying in 2008, they could have looked at this. it's been on youtube for five years. >> it is not same as 47%. >> why is it not. is it different? >> one difference mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that
. >> mike: let me get michael in. you're a speech writer and written for a president. how does mitt romney take this great moment and make sthat he next debate? the expectation are going to be sky high on him and poor or low for obama. >> when you take the hill you've got to hold the hill. we've got a preview from president obama what the attack is looking at. that romney is lying in other words, to cover a radical agenda and i think, you know, romney is going to have to responsibled patiently and substantively and turn it to a more aggressive side against obama's record and values. and i think the man who showed up in denver can do that. president obama will be better in the next debate. he could hardly be worse. so, i-- (laughter) >> , but (applause) >> that's like saying the mets mets are going to have a better season, michael. the manner in which he failed in that debate by being passive, dictates thats' going to have to be aggressive and that presents a challenge for the the president. because when he's on the offensive, he often seems petulant. he has a tendency not just to criticiz
